Until Only Love Remains....

This is (currently) one of my favorite songs. I know I've posted it here before but I can hardly resist doing it again. 

Only Love Remains 
Scenes of you come rushing through 
You are breaking me down 
So break me into pieces 
That will grow in the ground 
I know that I deserve to die 
For the murder in my heart
So be gentle with me Jesus 
As you tear me apart 

Please kill the liar 
Kill the thief in me
You know that I am tired of their cruelty
Breathe into my spirit
Breathe into my veins
Until only love remains 

You burn away the ropes that bind 
And hold me to the earth
The fire only leaves behind whatever is of worth 
I begin to see reality 
For the first time in my life
I know that I’m a shadow 
But I’m dancing in your light

Teach me to be humble 
Call me from the grave 
Show me how to walk with you upon the waves
Breathe into my spirit
Breathe into my veins 
Until only love remains
